    Hi, I'm new here.

    My dog had 4 puppies about 2 months ago, and I am wondering what breed (or cross-breed) they are. Does anyone know?

    I appreciate your help greatly.

    EDIT- Mother picture in post #4

    The mother is the dog on the right (the white one). The gold dog on the left is the fourth puppy. Father is unknown..

    You've only posted two pictures at the moment. You don't know the breed of the Dad? I am not going to guess as I know I will be wrong in this case!

    Edit okay understand what you mean now.

    I don't know what breed my dog is either. So the breed of my dog in post #4 (right one) and the breed (cross-breed) of the 3 puppies in post #1 and puppy on the left in post #4 is what I am looking for.

    Your help is appreciated.

    Are you in the Uk?

    I'm guessing some kind of sight hound, maybe whippet? x terrier? with a bit of Heinz 57 thrown in :lol:

    i would say the mother is possibly a whippet X & would say the babies look very much whippet x collie

    the mum looks like my whippet- but the tail of yours is longer & broader so thats what id say :D

    Thanks people.


    SpringerHusky - I am not in the UK, but I do visit all the time. Don't know if it's again forum rules for a non-UK person to post.

    Probably another mongrel. Which dogs do you have roaming around where you live and you might as well take your pick :(

    This is an early April Fool's joke - right?

    If it's not, your puppies are no specific breed - they are mongrels.

    What's funny about it that makes it seem like an April fools joke?

    I don't know why the fourth one looks different. It looks like the mother to me, except golden.

    Quite clearly they are mongrels, not a breed

    The mother looks like a jack russell / whippet type

    As for the puppies... the brown one looks really unusual, almost like a pug type, the black and white fluffy one looks like a spaniel / collie type and the black one is too blurred to even hazzard a guess.

    Its hard to guess what breeds are in dogs as it is, but near impossible to guess with small puppies, in blurred photos lol

    cross breeds are the result of two pure breeds mating together - Mongrels are the result of two cross breeds mating together - my guess is that if you don't know who the dad is then your bitch could have been mated several times by several different dogs - a litter can be made up of pups sired by different fathers and so all look different from each other - it is imposible for us to name any specific breeds because they are simply too 'mixed up' to define - i.e they are mongrels.
